Storyline

Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he loved once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach... a girl named Eden. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grownup Eden on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back... Not even the law or science!

Excellent fantasy
19 August 2013 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

I want to start by saying this movie is a romantic fantasy and it is a superb, beautifully crafted, incredible movie. This is the kind of movie that really uses this medium (cinema) to help us travel to imaginary and impossible places and situations.

People examining the physics in this movie are starting with the wrong foot, this movie is like a dream meant to be enjoyed. The images in this movie are like extraordinary postcards and will be hard to forget due to its beauty and detail.

The sets in this movie are beyond words and the acting is outstanding. The romantic couple is fantastic together.

I wish there were more movies with this kind of genuine and imaginative subjects.

Great movie, impossible not to recommend.
